The Process

 

Estimating ESTIMATING
Every fire sprinkler system is unique and each has a specific hydraulic demand based on a building’s occupancy. A single-family home may require only twenty-six gallons-per-minute, a multi-family sixty-five, while an industrial plant may require many hundreds of gallons per minute. A water supply to a fire sprinkler system is what a foundation is to a home. Our estimators will determine the volume of water required for your system. Is a public supply available or adequate or will a fire pump and storage tank need to be installed. In new construction our estimators consult with our clients and review their architectural drawings to determine the most efficient approach to an installation. Aesthetic considerations, areas subject to freezing, constraints with respect to framing or potential conflicts with other trades are just some of the items to be considered when developing a comprehensive project proposal.

Design DESIGN
Our designers synthesize the estimator’s proposal into a workable plan to meet your requirements and the applicable National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) design standard while also determining the most efficient approach to the installation. A design must be concise, allow for the creation of a detailed fabrication and material list and provide the installing fitter with a clear roadmap for the performance of their task. Life Safety Fire Protection, Inc accomplishes this by utilizing the most current design software, preconstruction and ongoing site visits and through the continuing education of our highly qualified system designers.

Project Management PROJECT MANAGEMENT
Prior to job startup a “Turnover Meeting” is held with the Project Manager, Designer and Lead Foreman to review the system layout, coordination of trades, time allocation and critical goal points. Our Project Manager makes frequent visits to job sites and is in daily contact with project Foremen. Experience has proven that open and honest communication along with frequent site visits will flush out potential issues before they become conflicts and provides the opportunity to measure both the quality and progress of our installations.

Installation INSTALLATION
Our qualified pipe fitters have much to consider in the process of installing a system, not the least of which is safety both individually and for others on the job site. Our pipe fitters are the backbone of the company. They must communicate and work well with site supervisors and the other trades people in order to coordinate an efficient installation. Quality and efficiency go hand in hand to assure that final pressure testing and inspections have positive results.

Project Closeout PROJECT CLOSEOUT
Upon project completion we bundle and provide as-built drawings, component diagrams and pertinent documents with a proposal for future inspection and testing of your system. As with any mechanical system a fire sprinkler system must be properly maintained to assure its continued reliable operation.
